The major mechanical projects are just about finished! I ended up outsourcing a bit of work for the 3rd member swap as I didn't have the tools/means of pressing out the axle shaft and swapping wheel bearings.
New shoes were in order after the diff was swapped out! I opted for some trusty BF-G KO2 tires in a 33x10.5 r15 size.
I finally feel as though I'm at the half way point with the project! Nearly ready for this season's adventures!
